Persephone - A Change of Season

'A Change of Season' was inspired by the mythological story of Persephone. I am intrigued how the human figure can be used to illustrate the phenomenon of season change, when put into the context of a story. This image illustrates the moment Hades pulls Persephone to the underworld and marks the beginning of the winter season.
    I finished this oil painting two months ago. It is the first oil painting I completed after moving away from this medium eight years ago. After living with this piece in my house for a few months, it has reminded me of the love I have for oil painting. The oil medium produces a richness in color that compares with no other paint medium I have worked with.
